It might be wise here to point out that this triple manifestation of fire demonstrates in the Astral and mental bodies likewise, having to do with the substance of those bodies. The fire of Spirit is the essential fire of the first Lord of Will plus the fire of the second Logos of Love. These two cosmic Entities blend, merge, and demonstrate as Soul, utilizing for purposes of manifestation the aid of the third Logos. The three fires blend and merge.
In this fourth round and on this fourth globe of our planetary scheme, the fires of the third Logos of intelligent matter are fusing somewhat with the fires of cosmic mind, showing as will or power, and animating the Thinker on all planes. The object of Their cooperation is the perfected manifestation of the cosmic Lord of Love.
FIRE DEVAS AND ELEMENTALS
The fundamental fact that should here be emphasized is that AGNI, the Lord of Fire, rules over all the fire elementals and Devas on the three planes of human evolution, the physical, the Astral, and the mental, and rules over them not only on this planet, called the Earth, but on the three planes in all parts of the system. He is one of the seven Brothers Who each embody one of the seven principles, or Who are in Themselves the seven centers in the body of the cosmic Lord of Fire, called by H.P.B. "Fohat."
He is that active fiery Intelligence, Who is the basis of the internal fires of the solar system. On each plane one of these Brothers holds sway, and the three elder Brothers (for always the three will be seen, and later the seven, who eventually merge into the primary three) rule on the first, third and the fifth planes, or on the plane of adi, of Atma and of manas. It is urgent that we here remember that They are fire viewed in its third aspect, the fire of matter. In Their totality these seven Lords form the essence of the cosmic Lord, called in the occult books, Fohat.
Lord Agni is one of the seven Lords of Fire which constitute the chakra centers of Fohat in the same way that the seven Heavenly Men (sacred planets) form the centers of our Solar System, the 7 Chohans of earthly Hierarchy form the centers of our planet, our seven chakra centers form the essence of our incarnated selves.
Physical Plane Elementals:
Astral Plane Elementals:
The fiery essences of this plane are more difficult for us to comprehend, having not, as yet, the seeing eye upon that plane. They are in themselves the warmth and heat of the emotional body, and of the body of feeling. They are of a low order when upon the path of desire, and of a high order when upon the path of aspiration, for the elemental is then transmuted into the Deva.
Their grades and ranks are many, but their names matter not save in one instance. It may be of interest to know the appellation applied to the Devas of fire whose part it is to tend the fires that will later destroy the Causal body. We need to remember that it is the upspringing of the latent fire of matter and its merging with two other fires that causes destruction. These elementals and Devas are called the Agnisuryans, and in their totality are the fiery essences of Buddhi, hence their lowest manifestation is on the sixth plane, the Astral.
